# Proving operator identities

How would I go about showing:

$$\hat{A}^{\dagger} + \hat{B}^{\dagger} = \left( \hat{A} + \hat{B} \right) ^{\dagger}$$

$$\langle \psi | A^\dagger | \phi \rangle = \langle \phi | A | \psi \rangle^*$$ and use that the complex conjugation is linear,
$$(a+b)^* = a^* + b^*$$.
